“Poor Food Good Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Expected more from this place, although service was good the food was very very poor. The pasta was so overcooked it was almost mushy, and the sauce was unpleasant. Both dishes looked to have been thrown in the dishes. You really would expect italians to be able to cook pasta - so simple! With the present chef i personally would not return even if it was free !

“Food very average service brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Ate here last month found the service on arrival from the women on the bar great. Liked the fact that you order your food while having a drink at the bar. When you are ready the table is set with the chilled wine and cutuarly on your table. The waiters are a great laugh to that it seems scripted at times haha.. The food wasn't great but the atmosphere and service made up for This.

“Magnifico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

There are many Italian restaurants with good ratings in the Blackpool area but we picked this one because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and also that it was a little way out from Central Blackpool and it's Saturday night melee.
As soon as our party of 7 walked in we were greeted very warmly. Within a few minutes every member of staff had said hello and the atmosphere from the other diners was one of noisy, happy chatter.
The menu did not have anything missing from what you would want from a good Italian and the prices reflected the quality.
Not only was the food excellent but the way the waiters interacted with each other and the customers was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble, they were happy to chat and to throw in a few tricks to keep the "audience" amused and confused!
Don't be put off by the fact it is a little way out from the town centre as a tram stop is located at the end of Red Bank Road and the restaurant is an easy few minutes walk.
Enjoy!

“Very family friendly, excellent service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

As a party of 8 (including 3 kids) we had the two course set menu at 17:30. The service was brilliant, very family friendly and the food tasted great and was good value. The resturant and toilets were very clean and had a very relaxed atmosphere. Would definately recommend and will be back!

“"WOW" Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Me and my missis have eaten all over blackpool and I have to say that if you want proper Italian food and a fantastic service - look nowhere else. Oh and the home made tiramisu is outstanding.

Thank you for great night. Perfect
